She's been playing in a room on the strip for ten years in Vegas  Every night she looks in the mirror and she only ages
She's been readin' about Nashville and all the records that everybody's buying 
Says, I'm a simple girl myself, grew up on Long Island 

So she packs her bags to try her hand
Says this might be my last chance 

She's gone country, look at them boots 
She's gone country, back to her roots 
She's gone country, a new kind of suit
She's gone counrty, here she comes 

Well, the folk scene's dead, but he's holding out in the Village 
He's been writing songs, speaking out against wealth and privilege 
He says, I don't believe in money, but a man could make him a killin'
'Cause some of that stuff don't sound much different than Dylan 

I hear down there it's changed, you see
Well, they're not as backward as they used to be

He's gone country, look at them boots 
He's gone country, back to his roots 
He's gone country, a new kind of suit
He's gone country, here he comes 

He commutes to L.A., but he's got a house in the Valley 
But the bills are piling up and the pop scene just ain't on the rally 
And he says, honey, I'm a serious composer, schooled in voice and composition 
But with the crime and the smog these days, this ain't no place for children 

Lord, it sounds so easy, this shouldn't take long
Be back in the money in no time at all

He's gone country, look at them boots 
He's gone country, back to his roots 
He's gone country, a new kind of suit
He's gone country, here he comes 

Yeah, he's gone country, a new kind of walk
He's gone country, a new kind of talk
He's gone country, look at them boots 
He's gone country, oh, back to his roots 

He's gone country 
He's gone country 
Everybody's gone country 
Yeah, we've gone county 
The whole world's gone country
